England fan’s shocking view after paying £170 for World Cup ticket

This wasn’t quite the view England superfan Ian Perry was expecting when he flew 10,000 miles and paid £170 – face value – for his World Cup match ticket.

But this is what confronted him when Ian, 42, who now lives in New Zealand, took his seat for the England vs Tunisia game on Monday evening.

His view was almost completely blocked by a TV cameraman.

"I couldn’t believe it," said Ian, originally from Preston, Lancashire.

"It was a Category One ticket as well."


Mirror Football bought Ian a beer as the stewards looked to rectify the situation.

"To be fair once the stewards saw the problem I was given another ticket on the other side of the stadium," Ian added.

From his new position, Ian was able to watch England secure a dramatic last-gasp win to give them a great chance of qualifying from Group G.
